Signing off 2008; Welcoming 2009

A poem from Julie:

Signing off 2008; Welcoming 2009

It’s time to put it to bed, lay it to rest.

Another year we have spent doing our best.

Countless hours we have logged, far from the woods,

That foresters might better harvest the goods.

Seeds we have planted, so knowledge might sprout,

With no farm ground or livestock or tractors about.

Let’s put 2008 to bed and lay it to rest

We’ve a new year in which to give our best!

2009 dawns; we stand at the ready,

Still on a course that’s sure and steady.

History won’t likely record our names

But it’s never been about glory or fame.

Our mark will be left on the trail of time

Etched like a beacon: Clear, sharp and fine,

Like the founding fathers, viewed only from ahead

Others will step up one day to stand in our stead

So, let’s put 2008 to bed; let’s lay it to rest

We’ve a whole new year — Let’s give it our best!

Property rights researcher Julie Kay Smithson hopes that each of you will accord 2008 the memories earned and lessons learned, but focus now on what lies ahead and continuing to learn how to protect, defend and enhance your property rights! Please visit http://www.propertyrightsresearch.org

Thank you for posting this, Mike! It is my hope that others will enjoy and be inspired by it to greet 2009 with eagerness and renewed energy. We can and we do make a difference, so we should find strength in that knowledge and build on that foundation!
